" a person only accumulates in his active memory the things he discovers for himself."

The program consists of developing a library on a block with existing buildings to maintain. The concept of the demand for fluid space, the volume of the library becomes a suspended object, the library will be developed as pathways, these have an irregular configuration, resembling a tour of a cave. Four different modules of shelf books are developed, which allows a variable combination, the combination alludes to the perception of a cave or canyon, where the route is always different. The connection of the modules is done through ceilings triangulations, this makes the behavior of light is different around the alignment of combination of modules. Looking for textures based on the conditions of existing materials, stains caused by the oxidation in the metal was the study subject meshes that let light and views of the library.
